So here is the problem, I have been running the dreamcatcher for quite awhile now, few months. It is outside on top of a shed inside a watertight container. It is hooked up to a battery and solar power. As night comes the signal goes from a strong SNR of 13-14 dB to a very weak 0-2. But here is the kicker it does not drop all at once, but gradually goes from 14 to 0 from sundown to sunrise. But then it jumps straight back up right around sunrise. I would think it would be the solar power and the battery, but we are running a 300 watt solar panel, and a 45 amp hour battery. So with it pulling around 3 amps, it should not effect it for a few days. And this problem does not happen when it is storming outside. We have also assembled another outernet using a raspberry pi3 and the old patch antenna, this one is just laying haphazardly on the ground pointed in the general direction of the satellite. It is getting a very strong SNR of 14 dB while the Dreamcatcher is getting an SNR of 6 dB, time here in Texas is currently 2015 (8:15pm). We have tried everything from switching over to house power, to changing the position of the antenna to changing all of the cables in-between all of the connections. I have run out of ideas, can anyone help?
Thanks in advanced, Texan
